Boxwoods at Watkins, 8x10

Boxwoods at Watkins
8x10, oil

Watkins Nurseries owns acres (upon acres) of gorgeous land in Amelia where they grow their landscaping "stock". Paintings will never paint themselves, as much as us artists dream that they will, but I definitely felt like they came close while I was out in the Watkins fields.

Rows of shrubs, trees, winding roads, sever small ponds. Oh, and some very interesting bugs.

(jeans tucked into the socks = negative points for fashion, but plenty of points for keeping the ticks and bugs OUT!)

The painting, as the title suggests, was painted from among the boxwoods shrubs & finished at home in my studio.
